New Doc from Loïc Jourdain About Tory Island
13 Apr 2018 :
Multi-award winning film maker Loïc Jourdain (A Turning Tide in the Life of Man) is directing a new documentary based on the changing circumstances of island life on Tory, the remote island community ten miles off the Donegal coast.

Currently in production and filmed over the last year, the film is supported by TG4, BBC NI, ILBF, CNC (France), and the Breton Regional Fund, and will be released in late 2018.

In recovery from cancer, the elderly King of Tory Island is once again involved in a campaign to preserve the island way of life. After fighting off the threat of full evacuation 30 years ago, the King and the island community are again at risk - families have left because of the recession, and because of restrictions on fishing rights, and more will leave if conditions do not improve. The island community feels isolated and vulnerable, and very distant from the decision makers in Dublin. How can this community, on the very margins of Ireland and Europe, preserve their unique way of life?

The film is a co-pro: Lugh Films (Republic of Ireland), Dearcán Media (North of Ireland) and Tita Films (France)
